Becoming a Christian is the most important decision you can
make. This decision does not only determine where you will spend
eternity, but it will determine every aspect of your life..
All People Have
Sinned Against God
The Bible says, "All have sinned and fall short of the glory of
God" (Romans 3:23). The word sin means to miss a target by
falling short of that target. Sin is the failure of a person to
live the life which God has planned for him to live. Everyone
has sinned, it is universal.
The Price of Sin Is High
The Bible says, "the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God
is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." (Romans 6:23).
The person who lives without God in this life will pay the awful
price of an eternity separated from God. The Bible calls this
place of separation hell. Hell was never meant to be the eternal
home of mankind, but God could not allow rebellious people to
enter into heaven. Heaven is the eternal dwelling of God's
people, and it is a place where God lives in perfect harmony
with His people.
God Loves us in Spite of Our Sin
The Bible says, "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that,
while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." (Romans 5:8).
Because of the righteousness of God, man must pay the penalty
for sin, or someone who is acceptable to God must pay the
penalty. The death of Jesus is the greatest demonstration of the
love of God for sinners. It is a great love for someone to die
in place of a loved one. But Jesus died for those in rebellion.
Repent, Turn Toward God, and
Have Your Sins Completely Taken Away
The Bible says, "Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that
your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall
come from the presence of the Lord;" (Acts 3:19). The word
repent means to turn around and go in a different direction. It
means a change of mind and life toward God. If you are willing
to turn to God, then God will restore you to purity. Jesus
described this experience as the "new birth." Your part is to
confess your sin, and God's part is to forgive and restore.
By Grace You Receive His Free Gift
Through Faith Which is Also from God
The Bible says, "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and
that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:" (Ephesians 2:8).
The word grace refers to the kindness and love of God in His
willingness to forgive and save. Faith means to trust to a point
of commitment. You cannot just believe in God. You must be
willing to give your life to God's teachings and God's will.
Salvation is God's gift if you will receive it with a commitment
to turn and follow Jesus.
Confess Jesus and Believe That He
Raised from the Dead by God
The Bible says, "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the
Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath
raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." (Romans 10:9).
The word confess means to acknowledge that Jesus is Savior and
Lord, to believe with all your heart that Jesus died on the
cross for you and came out of the grave, believe that He is
alive and will change your life as you follow and obey His
Pray (call upon) to the Lord and Be
The Bible says, "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the
Lord shall be saved." (Romans 10:13). Whoever means anyone can
ask God for forgiveness of sin and turn from sin and follow
If you believe all of the above then pray this simple prayer
and mean it and you will be saved
"Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner and need Your
forgiveness. I know You died on the cross for me. I now turn
from my sins and ask You to forgive me. I invite You into my
heart and life. I trust You as Savior and will follow You as
Lord. Thank You for saving me. Amen."
If you prayed this prayer to receive Jesus Christ as your
Savior, would you email me and tell me? I care about you.
